“Desert Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

I'm always leary of eating sushi away from the coast but I found the sushimi to be delicious! Service was very good and prices were good.

“Very average sushi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

If you are a beginner in sushi and like low prices with very average quality this is the place for you. The food is not bad but certainly not anything special.

They have been around Phoenix for many years and have several locations so somebody likes them enough to keep going.

“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2011

My wife and I love this place. We have eaten sushi all over the world and this is as good as you will get anywhere. Sure, as the previous reply stated, it's not cheap, but we live in a desert and it takes money to keep fresh fish in the restaurant. We live in Mesa and make the drive at least once a month to have some of the best sushi you can have in Phoenix. If you like eel, then you have to try the brothers roll! Their homemade eel sauce is to die for.
